LMC Members: Kickoff Women’s History month with a lecture on Women’s Clubs in US History!
Though LMC’s 131-year history is singular, it began as part of a larger-scale club movement that flourished in the United States in the late-19th and early-20th century. Scholar Dr. Karen Blair will discuss the impact of Women’s Clubs in American history and how the LMC fits into the greater Women’s Club movement. This event is the first of three members-only events for our inaugural Members Mini-Series in Winter/Spring 2022.
